  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease baking sheets. On a floured board, roll dough out to about 1/8 inch thickness, and cut into man shapes using a cookie cutter. Place cookies 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets.

  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, until cookies are golden at the edges. Cool on wire racks.
